human being, and those kinds of things usually remind you that they are, we're all just flesh and blood. and i tell you, the two things you take totally for granted until you lose them. one is your privacy. once you lose that, it's just, so unsettling. and the other is your health. >> your health. >> at the end of the day, if you don't have your health, how can you appreciate any blessing you have, you know? >> they say 40,000 women in the united states lose their battle with breast cancer each year. that's 40,000 a year. it's funny. >> how many globally? >> 450,000 around the world. >> but you know, it's interesting, because i remember when i was diagnosed with breast cancer. i went to tell my boss and i was so upset and i didn't know what to say. and he said, hoda, i know a lot of women with breast cancer and they all have one thing in common. and i said, what's that? and he said, they're still here. and it reminds you that the odds are high that you will still be here. it's funny, because my best friend's young daughter now knows a lot of people with cancer and she's not so afraid of it.
